just picked up this beauty for $5, so it can replace the Marx Pullman....after some shop time.

 

You should turn this into a bay window caboose....  It's perfect, just a little longer than the Lionel cabooses and not so oversized...Get a  boxcar roof for it and cut some tin for the bay windows...  Only problem is I don't think the Pennsy had too many if any Bay windows....

JimO'C  here's a couple more boxcars from that series.  What is interesting is that all of the boxcars have different home reporting marks.  

In the photos you posted The International Transport Wagen has Hamburg - which was a major shipping hub.

The Banana Wagen has Bremen - which would make sense since Bananas would have been imported from overseas and Bremen did/does a lot of maritime trade.

The California Frucht Transport has Berlin - my guess for this would be the idea of luxury imports - expensive fruit from California. Berlin would have had enough people who could afford such luxuries.

Also this one from Munich

If I did that...it would turn into this to  be prototypicaly correct....

any chance the brushes are too tight or too much spring pressure?  Looks like you have it wired right.  I just had a #2 KD motor that had the field and brush wires connected in parallel.  It ran that way on AC but got hot quick.  Once I changed the wiring so that the field and brushes were wired in series, it ran perfectly.  Do you have a video of it running?

e mailed you a couple videos Dennis
